Following the recent tides in recognition of Obi Cubana, the OkpataOzueora 1 Of Oba land for his humanitarian services, Operatives Of Transport Business in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, majorly Uber/Bolt known as the Abuja Pilots over the weekend welcomed Cubana back to Abuja from the successful burial of his late mother. In acknowledgement of his good works in our society to promote business ideas, the body deemed it fit to crown him the AMBASSADOR OF NIGERIAN YOUTHS as the leading entrepreneur, who has shown capacity in human development and business empowerment.
The investiture of Cubana took place at a dinner night on Sunday in one of the finest and leading bar/club in Africa, ‘Hustle & Bustle,’ in Abuja. Mr Mfon Patrick, the Convener of the event lauded Obi Cubana in his welcome speech saying, “We are delighted in the fact that you have made yourself an excellent ROLE MODEL for our generation in the corporate business environment. Your resourceful business acumen and skills to grow our economy and develop lives across board regardless of tribe has proven to the whole nation and beyond that you are indeed, the AMBASSADOR FOR NIGERIAN YOUTHS.”
The event which lasted over seven hours was charged with an aura of joy and pomp. Friends rallied round to show support to the Chairman of Cubana Groups, despite the very short notice.
In the event heralding the welcome party of the most trending celebrity in Nigeria, the OkpataOzueora 1 of Oba, was seen visibly overwhelmed with joy and emotions of a thankful heart. Presenting the award to Cubana, Sir George Agugua (KSC), Founder/President of Stella George Foundation, noted, “It’s a great day and we believe what is worth doing, is worth doing well.”
He thanked the Awardee for showing an exemplary life and congratulated him for a well deserved honour. The Convener, an Akwa Ibom- born politician and entrepreneur, popularly known as MP, when contacted on phone to ascertain what informed the award by his group stated, “Obi Cubana, has grown beyond his family circle. He has become a public asset, a national treasure that motivates every youthful energy to embrace hard work. People think Cubana is a celebrity. NO! Cubana isn’t the regular celebrity in town but a Tower of success, whose business records will outlive our generation. He is a leading entrepreneur that has devoted his energy to developing lives, hence, the best way to appreciate his good works is to bestow on him this award of AMBASSADOR OF NIGERIAN YOUTHS”.
Patrick stated further, “in sane climes, business proprietors have chosen to give back to the society via their various foundations and our awardee, Obi Cubana, isn’t an exception. He has become the foundation of liberation to a sea of Nigerian entrepreneurs in the face of very few benefactors.” “Perhaps, Abuja Pilots saw the value he has added to their businesses by opening the best club in Africa- Hustle & Bustle, in addition to his chains of hospitality businesses that keep them generating revenue in their transport business. They had to come welcome their Chairman back to the city of Abuja, adding, to run a successful Uber/Bolt business, one needs places of its kind (a hospitality outlet) to surge over a traffic of cash flow.” Patrick stated.
Disclosing how the journey for the award presentation started, Patrick said, “I told them hey guys, Abuja is a boardroom of business. Let me take you for a private meeting with your chairman in this street business. That was a meeting held on Sunday to appreciate the effort of the OkpataOzueora 1 Of Oba, obi_cubana. And we say, thank you! Thank you for your kind heart to humanity”.
